Author Danielle Cushing


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Crack the egg into a medium bowl and beat it lightly. Add in the almond butter, baking soda, and sugar and mix everything together well.
  3. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop the dough by tablespoon-full onto prepared baking sheet. Space the cookies well apart, and flatten them slightly with the back of a spoon.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Don't overbake these, the cookies will look underdone, but they will firm up as they cool.
  6. Let them cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer them carefully to a cooling rack.

Recipe Notes

You can use commercial or 'natural' almond butter for these cookies, although the type you use will alter their texture slightly. Sue found the best texture was with 1/2 Jiff almond butter and 1/2 natural almond butter and so that's how I made mine.
